An alleged female car fraudster Bridget Enchill Obeng has finally been apprehended by the Ghana Police Service Criminal Investigation Department (CID) after defrauding more than 10 victims under the guise of selling vehicles to them.
Bridget Obeng was caught at Baah Yard, Awoshie, in Accra, Ghana after reportedly playing avoiding the police for about nine months. The Ghana police authority says the Tesano, Adabraka, Teshie, and Airport police are also investigating Bridget for fraudulent activities.
ACP Peter Gyimah, the Director-in-Charge of Operations at the Criminal Investigating Dept. headquarters in Accra, revealed that the suspect, who operated with the name Naana, operates by displaying various vehicles for sale with her phone numbers on them.
When she is contacted by interested buyers, she then makes arrangement to either meet them or asks her accomplices to meet them and in the process, collects from prospective buyer cash ranging from GH¢9,000 to GH¢50,000.
Bridget is said to normally take the buyers to other people she claims are the actual owners of the cars that are up for sale. After the money has been paid, Enchill and her accomplices then give the victims fake car keys and documents and ask them to go for the vehicles, after which she disappears.
Police investigations revealed that the suspect and her cohorts usually use apartments that belong to people who are outside the country or hospitals for their criminal activities.
